1. I will make the most of the time here – it is 3 hours of my time that I do not get paid for.
2. I will enjoy myself I will have fun
3. This room will be familiar. I will see people on their own, open 2‘s and 3’s. They will be welcoming. Beware of the closed 2’s 3’s and 4+ groups unless there are people in there I already know.
4. I plan to talk to 3 new people and gain 3 new pieces of information.
5. I will work hard at introducing myself to the person/ people I’m targeting.
6. I will get myself into a positive state of mind.
7. Everyone here wants to network. That’s why they are here!
8. I’m a decent and likeable person I believe in myself and, in my area I have much knowledge and expertise.
9. There will be the odd rude person here…let’s just get away from them as soon as possible.
10. It might happen, but very very occasionally I might get rejected. These people aren’t worth giving a second thought to. Let’s focus on the 99.9% of pleasant and welcoming people.
